Oh, I am so glad you are ok! I am also so glad you got A's in your classes and can take the trip next summer!

I am sorry about your grandmother. But she's in a better place now.

Well I made it through the semester. I ended up with a 97, 99,100, 96, and a 94. My gpa went from 3.67 to about 3.8. So yeah, that's the best grades I've gotten in a single semester in a while with no B's. I was suppose to graduate this summer then transfer to another college this fall. However, I decided to take the summer off and finish up that certificate in the fall. After this doozy of a spring semester I needed a bit of a relaxing summer especially if classes in the fall are online only as well.


Oh...tonight at 6 pm central time there will be a virtual graduation ceremony instead of having an in person one. I've supplied the link to said graduation ceremony which yes will be on tonight for anyone who wants to watch it. I'm also not sure if I shared this but I will be going on my study abroad trip but it'll be next summer.

So....I've been busy.

My school plans inadvertently changed around June 24th. Apparently I found out that forgot to drop a class for the summer semester that I intended to complete this fall.
I found this out, it had already been 3 weeks of the semester. I had to create various productions with a total of 64 production hours. However, I did it and finished it before the end of the summer semester which is in 2 weeks.

I'm also somewhat concerned about my study abroad trip to London and Paris next summer in June whether or not that will happen.
Been thinking about trying to get a refund, and there's a time window of some sort. However, I really want to go on this trip but with covd-19 lasting longer than we anticipated. I'm torn on what to do.

a) You're a rockstar; that's amazing! b) Was it your choice to go through with the class this summer, or did you ask and you weren't allowed to disenroll from it to take it in the fall?

I'm not you, so only you know what's right for you. However, if it were me, I'd try to get that refund before it's too late. Imagine if you don't get the refund during the allowed time frame, Covid is still raging in a year or even 2. For people not getting refunds, is the company holding that $ and keeping those people on a wait list or something? What if the company goes belly-up and you never get a refund if you have them hold onto your $ just in case?!

Wow Michael, you really are amazing for finishing that class that you didn't even know you had for three weeks!

I agree with Amy, you should get your money back for the trip, sad as it is. Maybe you can do it another time?

Whoops. Can't believe it took me 4 months to supply an update on stuff. It's been a busy and by far exciting semester.
I know that's sort of weird with covid, but first let me explain the study abroad situation.

Back in may if I cancelled I would have only gotten half of my money back because of rooms booked etc.

However, now with the travel ban things have changed. I have until 2022 to decide if I want to go on some sort of study abroad to get a refund with all about 500 bucks. This is great news tbh. So, the study abroad whether to cancel by a certain date between now and this summer hasn't been an issue. So, I've been able to mentally put that on the back burner. If the trip doesn't go this summer, I'm taking the money and applying to school stuff. This is also good because it's a bit of a nest egg too. Trust me when I say this is great and I have no doubt that the travel ban imposed of blocking people from traveling to the USA to other countries is the reason why. So, for now I'm not worried about it right now so I can focus on more important things for the moment.

I have been extremely busy because I'm back on campus. If classes at my community college can be online they are. Only those with lab classes are on campus. I paid about $120 for a 1 credit indy study in radio. I have been back on the radio, making productions and having a sense of normalcy. Though on Monday our region goes from phase 4 to 3. if it goes to phase 2 then we all back to being fully remote. I've made some amazing productions that have been on the radio a lot. You can only be around the radio department if you are there for something academic related. So, that's why I've been so busy, but having fun.

I've also made several projects for my main class. I am going to transfer to another university this coming spring. Several classes will be online lectures, but being on campus apartment will help because I will have resources there I can use and I'll probably be involved with the college radio station in some form or another.

So, I've been happier than I have been in a very very very long time since this pandemic lockdown began. I do have a cousin that's been on a ventilator for over a month after being diagnosed with covid. So, it is frustrating to see the falsehoods and lies being spread and believed by people, even those I know, but I digress.

I have also been sending off for autographs for various celebrities. One of them was Ed Asner. I mailed him a picture of Hudson whom he voiced in Gargoyles along with a flash drive of radio work and a 3 page paper. He has a son my age with Autism and for 15 years I've always wanted to share with Ed Asner how much he's helped me since that fateful day I impressed him.

He sign the picture and wrote a hand-written note front and back. One of the comments he made was, as a father with a son of autism I'll tell you this. Take a deep breath, relax, and be amazed at what you can accomplish. I had to take a picture of his note on my phone with flash because he writing was chicken scratch. That's probably why he wrote that he normally doesn't write too much and now I know why. I've gotten Jay Leno's autograph, Sally Struthers, Bob Newton, Tad Stones, Jesse McCartney, Alex Trebek, Lin Manuel Miranda, James Marsden, a former saint louis cardinals player (Gift for my rtv teacher), and Pat Carroll. I think there's more, but it's late and I'm tired. I'll try to post and update on things sooner than 4 months later next time.

Really awesome stuff going on at school and with those signed pictures and even a letter from Ed Asner! It's so great that he has a son with autism, too, and what he wrote you. And wow something from Pat Carroll! I love her! I am so glad you are so happy! I will pray for your cousin to get better!

Michael! Thanks for the update! I'm so sorry about your cousin, that's awful. I sure hope they are able to get healthier. I think that sounds like a good plan about the trip $. I'm happy that you are back on the radio and that you're happier now. Are you excited for transferring schools and moving to the apartment? That's a big adventure!

That's great that Ed Asner wrote you back!! That's special. Very cool about the autographs- that's a neat hobby.
